The author's novel-sequel to "The Weatherman". The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. "This adept and fascinating novel revolving around the Lindbergh kidnapping explores the possibility that convicted kidnapper Bruno Hauptmann had an accomplice. This psychopath is alive today and living in Minneapolis. Now his victims are Rick Beanblossom, investigative journalist, and Andrea Labore, TV anchor. Local color abounds, exposing Minneapolis' sordid past as well as its pristine present. Thayer flashes back to reporter Grover Mudd (Rick's counterpart or previous life), investigating the original Lindbergh story. Grover's world is in sharp language, reminiscent of Cagney films sans Hollywood censor. Thayer does not step over the line, maintaining the integrity of the Beanblossom plot" (Denise Blank). A "must-have" title for Steve Thayer collectors. This copy is prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Steve Thayer. This title is now collectible.
